Rock Doctors

rock docs Shannon is a science teacher in Chicago, but for the past 25 years, she's been a student of martial arts. For the last five, she's been studying muay thai, Thai boxing, and thriving. She asked the Rock Doctors for a walk up song to play before fights to pump up herself and the crowd. Greg suggests a thrash metal song by the band Power Trip called "Executioner's Tax (Swing of the Axe)" to get the people going. Jim, admittedly more of a lover than a fighter, chooses The Gossip's "Standing In the Way of Control," an empowering female anthem.

After trying out the songs before sparring matches, Shannon has made her decision. Which one did she choose? Listen and find out.
